********ATTENTION******** deaths in my family required my attention and I was unable to send quite a few of my swaps out but I am coming out of my grieving and feel the need to be artsy/crafty & help me get some happy back. I will be trying to send out the ones I missed and rejoining this awesome community. :) Please be kind as I get back into the swing of things. Thanks!!
I am an aviatrix and a happy mother of a little boy who just turned two! I have a terribly sweet husband of 5 years. I love to read, decorate my home, crafts of any kind, baking, cooking, & learning new things. I love meeting new people & I especially love getting mail (the good kind-not bills. lol) I love mad men & retro items. I also love items that involve nature. Trees, leaves, flowers, wood, etc
I love all kinds of music. the radio stations I listen to most are Coffeehouse on XM & Klove. I have an ipod but I never remember to take it with me. :)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to read. My husband just got me a kindle & I can't put it down!
I watch baby tv, nick jr, & your baby can read. If I had time to watch tv I would watch mad men (LOVE it!!!) & makeover home edition. I also love community & the soup!
I can't do strong smells. I have frequent migraines & that's a trigger.
I don't like cigarette smoke smell (another trigger)
I can't stand it when people smack while eating or bite their fork.
Other than those I'm just peachy! :)
